Posthumous Oscar for Ledger

Exactly a year to the day since Heath Ledger died of a prescription drug overdose, has received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the 2009 Academy Award Celebration.
His death at age 28 sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry, and left fans mourning a premature ending to an already promising acting career.
It has been speculated that the rigorous demands of portraying the Joker in the Dark Knight led him to bouts of insomnia which were the reason he required prescriptions for anti-anxiety medication as well as pain killers.
The performance was indeed globally popular, assisting the Dark Knight in earning top film honors and nearly $1 billion in ticket sales.

Heath Ledger has already received a Golden Globe award, and a BAFTA nomination for best supporting actor. An Oscar for the same seems unquestionable.
NW Limited…History in VogueTM has honored Ledger with very small editions of signed, framed pieces in their DC Comics line. Many of them can be seen here.

Hollywood.
Glamor and excess; bright and beautiful the name shines in our culture.
It is a fantastic creation, an escape from the everyday:  Lighting, sets, special effects.
All is about the drama and mystique surrounding the movies and their stars.
As the 80th Academy Award celebration draws near, we have heard all about the pageantry surrounding this event.  Film is a medium in which historic and cultural events are often expressed.  The movies themselves, as well as their stars, have made histories of their own.  We’ve all got our favorite movie moment, actor or actress, and would love to be part of this prestigious event.
An exclusive event of your own is much more attainable than a ticket to the Oscars, more limited, and every bit as worthy of the honor of “BEST“:

Jimmy Stewart is a silver-screen legend, embodying wholesome American ideals. His real life seemed an easy match for the man we saw and loved on screen.  James took home his Oscar for Best Actor in 1941 for Philadelphia Story, also taking a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1985.

Star Wars is one of the biggest movie legacies of all time.  Eight Oscars for the 1977 release, and multiple record-breaker.

Sean Connery in Astoria?

Astoria’s no stranger to celebrity sightings.  More than a handful of movies have been filmed here, and during those times it’s interesting to hear the gossip around town relating to locals’ experiences with these usually distant icons. 
A few stars have even shown up sporadically just to take in the beauty of the Sunset Empire, a/k/a Astoria, or do a little whale watching along the coast.  Maybe they heard about the legendary beachcombing following our winter storms. Just maybe they are scouting the location of their next big production.
This latest inuendo is of great interest, considering the debut of NW Limited’s James Bond tribute series:
Rumor has it that none other than Academy Award winner, recipient of the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and oft-voted sexiest man alive, Sean Connery, also the star of multiple James Bond movies, as well as other Hollywood greats, was spotted in none other than Astoria, Oregon.  Who was the lady on his arm?  Further speculation arrived at the conclusion that it was his once-costar, Lana Wood who played Plenty O’Toole in the James Bond classic, Diamonds Are Forever. It wasn’t just her name that left audiences enchanted, and sources say that though she and Mr. Connery were in a rush, Ms. Wood still has “plenty” to talk about. Sean must have thought so, too, as they rushed off to their unknown destination.
No comments were made as to the reason for the visit to the north coast.
Astoria must be just far enough off the beaten path to provide respite from the paparazzi.  Unfortunately, no photos exist of their hasty stop.
It was surmised that they paused just long enough to sign a few autographs.  Who was that lucky fan that got those much-sought-after signatures?  If it was you, let us know!
